No Washer Fluid Squirting Out

I can force compressed air through the lines and hear the washer pump whirrling. Anyone have any ideas? New pump/washer bottle? Anyone have a dual pump washer bottle laying aorund?

Pull the little one way valve off thats right after the pump and reconnect without it. In my case it was blocking the flow. At the very least you can confirm the whirring of the pump is actually pumping liquid as well.

I have a large hole in the washer hose that goes to the rear door window. The hole is by the driver windshield pillar (someone screwed a screw through the hose at some point). Can I trim and patch this with a plastic fitting of some sort or do I need to run a complete new hose (=pain)?

Sure. A regular barb fitting should work fine, but if you are worried about restricting the flow, sleeve it with a piece of tubing that has an inner diameter of the outside diameter of the existing line.

I've put a small fuel filter in line just after the pump to stop the jets blocking which used to happen with stunning regularity.

Tubing sleeve is a great idea. There's very little room once the plastic cover goes over it (left of the windshield, between windshield and side window) so that should do the trick. Thanks!
